Hempt expands

Peter Hempt GmbH & Co has opened a new tank container storage facility at its headquarters in Worms, Germany. The company has now doubled its storage capacity to around 2,000 units.

Hempt invested a total of €6.5 million in the new facility, increasing the total area to 65,000 cbm. In addition, a dangerous goods storage facility was constructed in which filled tank containers can be stored temporarily for clients. Strict conditions ensure the safe storage of the tank containers.

A repair workshop for chassis was also constructed directly adjacent to the new storage facility. The previous chassis workshop on the existing property has been converted into a second container repair workshop, increasing the site’s repair capabilities by approximately 30 percent. At least 10 new positions have been generated at the Worms site, which already has 150 employees. The expansion of business resulting from the storage facility will, for the first time, allow apprentices to be employed beginning in 2013.

The company has 65 Euro-5 compliant tractor units to transport the tank containers as well as over 420 tank container chassis available for hire in various versions. The company’s dangerous goods storage facility has an area of 15,000 sqm. Like the facility and the company as a whole; it is certified to DIN ISO 9001 and approved under the German Federal Emissions Prevention Act.
